Lightly brush chicken with olive oil. Season both sides with salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder to taste. Grill over medium heat about 10 minutes each side or until meat has slight char and centers are completey white when cut into. (Just use a sharp knife to cut into the center of one or two of the largest chicken breasts to check for color).
